“Nursing is no longer a profession symbolized by a lady with a lamp—in fact, a growing percentage of today’s nursing school applicants are male, said Dr. Scott. “In this hour-long program, my guests and I explore the nursing profession in light of new technologies and skills, changes in the delivery of health care in America, and the education and training of future nurses.”

Tomaino, MS, RN, Executive Vice President, Continuing Care Division, Catholic Health Services of Long Island; Dr. Patricia Donohue-Porter, RN, Director of the Ph.D. Program, School of Nursing, Adelphi University.
